Kosher / Kosher-style Menus

On Safari specializes in kosher-style catering. All meals made in our catering kitchen can be prepared kosher-style in keeping with meat or dairy meals, and we can use kosher meats upon request.

Meals can be prepared kosher or glatt kosher if cooked in a kosher kitchen.

On Safari is a preferred caterer at many kosher synagogues in Seattle, and is a preferred vendor at UW Hillel. We can also coordinate a Seattle Vaad certified event. Mashgichim from the Vaad are $25 per hour, with a four hour minimum.  

The size of the event will determine how many mashgichim are required.  There is a $1.50 per plate fee on top of the hourly rate, plus a $125 fee.

All items are subject to seasonal availability.  We are happy to provide vegetarian (v), vegan (vg), and gluten-free (gf) options.
